Fenerbahce break on through
Turkish side Fenerbahce qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League for the first time on Wednesday thanks to a 3-1 win over CSKA Moscow in Istanbul.
Fenerbahce took the runners-up spot in Group G behind Inter Milan who had already made sure of their place in the knockout round.
Inter beat PSV Eindhoven 1-0 to end the Dutch side's slim hopes of pipping the Turks for second spot.
Fenerbahce went a goal down after half an hour when their Brazilian defender Edu diverted a cross from Caner Erkin, a Turk who plays in Russia, past his own goalkeeper Volkan Demirel.
But they were indebted to another Brazilian for pulling them level two minutes later when midfielder Alex volleyed past Igor Akinfeev.
On the stroke of half-time, UEFA Champions League debutant Ugur Boral slotted home a fine pass from Alex to put Fenerbahce ahead and on course for the next round.
Boral came close to making it 3-1 after 65 minutes but his shot came back off the crossbar.
However, he had the last word with his team's third in the last minute.
Meanwhile, PSV, who needed to beat Inter to have any hope of qualifying, were reduced to 10 men in the 28th minute when Edison Mendez was red-carded for a foul on David Suazo.
The one-man deficit eventually proved decisive with the Italian champions opening the scoring in the 64th minute.
A long ball down the left released Suazo who skipped past Carlos Salcido and Timmy Simons before cutting the ball back for Argentinian striker Julio Cruz to apply the simplest of finishes for his 18th Champions League career goal.
